Ready for some JUGS?

LOL this abbreviation cracks me up! :)
I'm being a very happy Guest Designer for the month of February for Just Us Girls, and the new challenge has just launched! Here are the details:

I never heard about the split negative technique before, but I'm glad i was introduced to it - it's fun, fun fun!! There can be some spectacular effect created with it, provided that there's a nice & big stamp used. I decided to used my lovely Stamp-It stamp (OMG how awkward it sounds!)

Supplies: cardstock: Quill, DCWV; stamp: Stamp-It!, Paper Xtra (sentiment); ink: ColorBox Whisper Grey; Ancient Page Cobalt; ribbon: Sullivans; button& twine: stash

I also made two cards yesterday, but with the weekend approaching, I found myself having no time to share them with you earlier.
Here's the card I made for WT257 - Odds Are, and CAS53 - Candyland. I used this scrumptious lollipop from the Candy Crate store as my inspiration. It sooo reminds me of the goodies that I used to love as a child!

Supplies: cardstock: Quill; paper: DCWV; stamp: Kaisercraft (the sentiment is printed out); ink: ColorBox Ice Jade, Orchid Pastel, Peach Pastel, Vivid! Yellow; rhinestones: Kaisercraft

The other card is a much different style. It's made for GS#25:

Supplies: cardstock: Quill; paper: digital printables; rub-ons: Wendy Irving; ink: Versa Color Umber; sewing machine; pearls: Rasberry; the rest is my stash (I don't remember where the flocked chipboard letter comes from...)

Voila, that's it for now! I wouldn't count on having anything new posted tomorrow, unfortunately. Not only it's another oh-so-leisure weekend *rolls eyes*, but I'm planning to finally reinstall Windows tomorrow. I keep my fingers crossed that it won't take too long...
I'm wishing your time is better spent this weekend,


  1. WOW you are FAST! These are all fabulous! I'm always drawn to the bright so love that You Warm my Heart card most!

  2. These are fabulous, Chupa! I love the JUGs card and the stamp you used for it is perfect. The second one with the three flower pots is so bright and cheerful, and I love the style of the third one. All so different but certainly Chupa! Thanks so much for doing such a great job as JUGs guest designer and glad you are having fun!
